New wardrobe staples from Exquisite Trimmings, London

It was with great anticipation that I opened the elegant green gift box from Exquisite Trimmings today; a lovely wine/navy/gold Shantung silk tie from Drake's London and an exquisite Navy and Sky Mediterraneo silk pocket square from Mariano Rubinacco were revealed.

I have grown very fond of the lovely designs from Drake's and especially their crude Shantung silk ties; and a proper striped tie was lacking in my collection of ties.
I prefer my Drake's ties to any other ties and most days I wear Drake's - this new very versatile tie will be a true wardrobe staple.

The Rubinacci pocket square has a very luxurious look and feel and is a giant 16"x16".
The quirky map depicts Naples as the center of the Mediterranean - the sartorial Capital by the sea - Mare Nostrum.
Also a very versatile accessory in the Sky, Navy, Gold and Beige colours.
